He is business oriented. His office and tools are old. I would not go back.
I was lucky enough to find a same day appointment, which is rare! But shortly after I made my appointment, I received a call from the office saying they were double-booked and that there would be a long wait. I was confused because it looked like he had earlier availability accoridng to ZocDoc. But it sounds like they have a new admin system that is not yet integrated with ZocDoc. So I ended up waiting for 1 hour to be seen, which was not ideal.
Office staff and Dr. Baron were extremely nice and punctual. Highly recommend. Dr. Baron cauterized my nose and he made the process comforting and simple. Thank you!
Excellent. As always
Dr Baron was terrific - very thorough yet efficient. I highly recommend him!
Easy in and out for what I needed. Great service at reception. Dr. Baron was very efficient , friendly and professional. Thank you!
Long time patient Always feel very confident with dr baron Plus his reception staff are fantastic Very professional with great personalities !
He did not spend much time on listening to my symptoms and rushed through the appointment. He was not able to diagnose the problem.
Great experience overall, short wait time, excellent demeanor, I would not hesitate to visit Dr Barron again!
A very smooth and efficient appt. Dr. Baron was very professional and courteous. Highly recommended.
Iit was great I feel beeter already. He makes u feel well and I dont like doctors
I went to see Dr. Baron because I had been suffering from tinnitus for five days. The tone in my ear was disruptive enough to impact my sleep and work quality. While his bedside manner is perfectly friendly, during my 10 minute visit Dr. Baron indicated he would do nothing, and rely on the tone disappearing on its own. He sent me off to a standard hearing test. The test was inconclusive (no surprise), but it took me a week to get Dr. Baron to respond with the results. Still no treatment suggestion. Another week goes by and after calling repeatedly, I still haven't received a call back. Months later I've received a bill in the mail, but no treatment and am now the proud owner of chronic tinnitus (permanent in 3/4 of patients if not treated). Really, really disappointed.
Wasn't very attentive, just gave me a very quick diagnosis without looking very much and sent me on my way without really giving me details. Had to go to another doctor to fix my symptoms.
Dr. Baron was to the point and efficient in checking out and taking care of my ear problem, but he was also kindly and compassionate. That kind of bedside manner is well-balanced and reassuring. I would definitely see Dr. Baron again in the future.
Great with kids! Amazing . Thanks
After a nightmare of an experience at Golden Gate Urgent Care (walked in without hearing in one ear, walked out in pain with bleeding ears and unable to hear out of both ears), Dr. Baron saved the day. I was late to the appointment, and he was still so pleasant. It was a quick appointment and I walked out of the office hearing out of both ears like I never had before. I learned about the anatomy of my ears and now go back to see Dr. Baron about once every 4-6 mos. He is a miracle worker.
Dr. Baron's office staff were courteous, and wait time was minimal. Dr. Baron himself was very understanding of all my concerns. While he quickly identified the issue, he took time to answer all of my questions, and to schedule a follow-up.
Dr. Baron was efficient and answered all of my questions. The receptionist was nice, but I heard her on the phone being a little curt with another patient (although she did relay to the doctor that I had been waiting a little long and was on my lunch hour, which was appreciated!) My wait time was 20 minutes, and the office didn't appear to be busy. I would suggest giving yourself time to come to this office! Overall though, I would come back.
Seemed like a pretty basic exam, but then my issue isn't a serious one. Advised me to do what I'm already doing with one additional treatment to add to that. I think he could have spent a few minutes reading the info I had submitted through ZocDoc before seeing me - appeared he may not have done that.
Professional and delightful.
He listened to my concerns and was efficient with the time we had together.
It was short and sweet, but I think he correctly diagnosed the problem. :) We will wait and see!
the best! the staff very frendly very custermers service . would recemned them very highly
It was a very good tretment he was very professional and actuall very good,
He's a lovely doctor. If you need a quick fix from infections or hoarseness, he may not be the right doctor for you. If you want honesty and health for the long run, he may be the doctor for you.
He got us in same day !! Such a smooth run practice . Would return for sure . Thank you for great service and help.
Kind, knowledgable & quick with treatment
He is an outstanding doctor and I would highly recomend him to anyone.
Dr Baron was caring with excellent bedside manners and seemed very knowledgeable.
Good appointment, had concerns about my ears and scuba diving. Answered my questions but didn't seem interested in spending more than the minimal amount of time with me, even though there wasn't anyone waiting.
He is thoroughly professional and a respected leader in his field.
Years of experience, remembered me after 2 years since seeing me last. Highly recommended.
Doctor saw me within 5 minutes of arriving to the office, which was awesome. He's a very quick doctor, which some people might appreciate, but it made the appointment feel rushed. Not very patient, but seemed knowledgeable and felt like he knew what he was doing.
Dr. Baron was very professional & efficient. I will schedule with him for any further ENT issues.
Excellent, as always.
Dr. Baron listened attentively and responded to questions and concerns. The examination was thorough and reassuring.
Awesome. He was great. An incredible doctor and very nice.
About a 5-7 minute wait actually. I only see him every so often for a simple procedure, quite satisfactory.
Dr. Baron is the best. So is the Receptionist.
He is the best. Very nice, refined man. Best Doctor, you get the best care. The Receptionist is so nice too. Wonderful people.
I think Dr. Baron is wonderful, extremely experienced, very reassuring and kind. He,s obviously an outstanding ENT and I,ll keep him as my permanent doctor.
I had a sinus issue that was on the mend by the time I got into see Dr. Baron. He was helpful, took time to explain the cause and some of the over-the-counter methods I could use to treat/prevent the issue in the future. I didn't feel rushed, and I got all my questions answered.
I go to Dr. Baron as a vocalist. He's always been able to assist me right away to assist me with my vocal health concerns. I was relieved to find there was no damage after a bout of a nasty cold, coughing and such that had gone on for weeks. All is well!
It was quick and efficient... and a great "bedside" manner...
Very good. He was nice and he is a good doctor
My husband had a blocked ear and we didn't want him getting on a plane that weekend. Dr Baron was very kind and humorous as he informed us that it was just a build up of wax. He then flushed and cleared both ear canals and we were on our way. Very pleasant experience. I love this referral system;-) Pam and Billy from Dallas, Tx.
There was virtually no wait, everything was professional, I was in and out in no time.
Efficiently answered my questions, good followup.
Quick seamless solution !
It was great--he really listened to me and answered all my questions and was friendly while being very professional and knowledgeable at the same time. I would definitely go back if I need more help or advice in the future.
Excellent physician; knowledgeable and helpful. Great and friendly staff, too. The only downside was the wait -- I was seen approximately 11:20 for a 10:45 appointment (and I got there 15 minutes early!).
He was in and out of the exam room very quickly. I felt kinda rushed. Otherwise, it was fine.
He was kind, professional and very efficient. He gave me a feeling of trust and competence.
Dr. Baron was very professional, knowledgeable and prompt. He also gave me very good news, so it was a happy visit.
I came in a while back after having a severe case of laryngitis. I basically lost my voice entirely and it was not helpful to my job. I have had recurring tonsil inflamation, hoarseness, seasonal, winter etc. I was not encouraged to remove my tonsils but was informed that I had a nodule on my vocal chord. The Dr. prescribed generic amoxicilyn for a week and suggested I see a Vocal Coach to help me "learn to talk correctly" to prevent this same problem from recurring. I appreciated the nodule confirmation but felt the Vocal Coach suggestion was a brush off. After a few weeks of being more conscious of the sudden cold/warm changes and taking care of my throat at home, the problem went away and has never returned.
